It has been snowing quite heavily last week and the temperature dipped to below zero degrees. I really don’t like the biting cold. Aberdeen, Scotland, is facing the North Sea and the wind causes an intense winter chill that seems to pierce into all my bones. It gets worse when the Arctic wind blows south.
Aberdeen buildings are mainly built from granite, making the city particularly depressing during the cold, gloomy winter. So, a big snowfall is actually most welcoming as it lightens and cheers up the place. In fact, Aberdeen is a very beautiful place to live in…beautiful sceneries, clean air and not too crowded.
One of my New Year resolutions is to learn photography and I must say that I’m really blessed that William, a very good friend, has been giving me a lot of tips about photography. William is very gifted in many things. I also call him my computer doctor. He is the first that I’ll call if I have any computer problem. I think his greatest thrill is laughing at my ignorance in computer because of all my silly questions. The only thing I’m better than him is, maybe, cooking…..hehe. He cooks awesome ‘beef rendang’ though, which is the famous Malaysian beef curry. He and his family have been a tremendous blessing to us since we came to Scotland…….total strangers turned wonderful friends.
Well, he showed me some photos the other day and I just fell in love with them immediately. I was very inspired. I asked if I can post them on my blog and he happily said ‘yes’. That really made my day! Hope you enjoy all these beautiful winter scenes here in Aberdeen, Scotland. Every picture is very unique, beautiful and has a story to tell!
